"My Life as a Digital Nomad at Home" by HMD

Working remotely is, in my opinion, a fantastic lifestyle choice- if you can swing it.  I have thoroughly enjoyed the last couple years that I've been able to plug away at various projects on my laptop with a nice view beyond the top of the screen.  It's been incredible to see all of the places I've been, and to share it all with you along the way.  I realize how fortunate [...]

"Things I’ve noticed after returning home to the USA" by HMD

Returning home after travel brings up many emotions including, but not limited to, angst.  It's all very weird after the dust settles and you've made your initial "rounds" of reunions with friends and family.  People are "super excited your home!" until life goes back to normal and it's business as usual.  You're excited, too, and then, suddenly, you feel every ounce of the giant halt you're coming to...a screeching loud and [...]

Sleeping in a Capsule with Rainbow lights in LONDON

Throughout London you'll see quite a few St. Christopher's Inn locations- there are eight in London alone.  The hostel/hotel chain has many locations, and not just in the UK.  I actually stayed at another location in Berlin, Germany two years ago near the beginning of my travels and loved it.  They have four guiding principles at St Christopher's: Safe, Fun, Secure, Value- and I can vouch for all four. One of [...]

Living like a Local in Leeds, England

In February, with plans to head back to the states by the end of March, I had about 5 weeks left to explore more of Canada (I was in Montreal), but I was really feeling the need to slow down before beginning the journey home.  The project I worked on in Canada was over and I'd already adjusted to the cold, so I thought: why not finally make my way to [...]

How I Finance Traveling Full-Time

Originally when I left home in late 2015, my travels were only supposed to last a year. I budgeted for one year- accurately breaking down my budget to $50 a day and swearing to stick to it. What ended up happening was a surprise to me (a former shopoholic)... I repeatedly came under budget. Month two abroad, somewhere in Portugal, I started blogging, earning (very small) passive income and later began [...]

Happily “Homeless”

It's funny how it's taken all of 840 days, 4 continents and 31 countries plus a visit to California for certain things to REALLY set in.  Sometimes you're moving so fast you don't realize the full gravity of what you're experiencing.  Have you ever been there?  I have...recently, quite a bit. I've spent many days lately letting the fact that I am actually homeless mentally "marinade."  I knew this all along...sort [...]

Finding my Zen in the madness of Medellin

We spent 10 full days in Medellin, Colombia- and I've got to admit (especially after so much chill time in Peru) the raging energy of the city could feel exhausting at times. Many people are constantly partying, cars are driven by crazies behind the wheel, and the city seemingly never sleeps (for tourists at least). Medellin is one beautiful, crazy city! I had a totally different experience than most [...]

I stayed at Los Patios Boutique Hostal in Medellín, and now I’m ruined (in the best way).

When I first walked into Los Patios my immediate thought was "Oh my gosh, they have swings!" followed by "Oh my gosh, look at that cute little bar with pink neon lights!" The moments kept coming as we checked in and were then given a full tour of the 5 story boutique hostal/hotel. [wpvideo rQqQHDG4 ] Before I'd even slept one night here I knew this would be my new favorite [...]

Staying Productive on the Road

Life of a digital nomad may look glamorous (and sometimes, it really is) but there are many factors that go into sustaining the lifestyle.  The biggest factor?  You guessed it.  M-O-N-E-Y.  Do some of us full-time travelers get paid to travel?  Yes, but it takes a lot of good old fashioned work to get there.  I am nearly two and a half years in and I'm just now starting to feel [...]

Dream Destinations for 2018

As 2017 comes to a close and 2018 approaches I've been daydreaming more and more about where this year will take me.  Visualizing has become a big part of my everyday life and so I'm taking that to the next level and publicly publishing my dream travel list for 2018.  Let's all watch and see if I can make it happen! In no particular order, here are the top four places [...]
